And yes a little update on the car.

I am refurbishing the wheels at the moment.

So they are looking like this.

I am going to paint them, refinish the lips and make them all shiny again

And dose anyone know where I could find these, the air valves for the BBS RSII?

So jelly of your wheels! You may need to contact BBS on getting a new valve stem, or contact a local tire shop and they should be able to get you some metal valves.

Yeah I think I will just end up contacting BBS in the end.

I have been lacy and there on hold at the moment.

Exams in school at the moment so not much time to get anything done.

I hate do disappoint you but unfortunately I sold the car and the wheels before I finished the refurbish.

I do however have some pictures of it after the guy who bought it from me finished it.







These aren't the best pictures but pictures non the less.

But since I'm updating this I might as well show you some of the updates on the car before I sold it.

I did a projector retro fit on it witch came out amazing if I do say so my self.

Its amazing how much projectors do for the front look of the car, much more aggressive and modern looking.

And I also changed the rear lights out for EE LED ligths.

But since this was bumped for the wheels here are some pics after I had the wheels glass blasted and in the process of polishing them.

But I have to say I do miss this car allot and I will definitely buy another e46 in the near future.

This is what came in its place.

I have such a soft spot for an FD. Nice pick up!

The gunmetal finish turned out great! Really compliments the silver of the car.

Thanks for the update!

Yes I saw this car for sale and there are not to many of those here in Iceland and I just could not let that opportunity go, had to have it !

I agree the gunmetal really dose do the silver car justice.

And no problem always fun knowing people are interested in each others projects !
